Practiced with a Tweaker 88 ... ...for a British amp.
Just a small correction, Egnater are actually American, often made in the far east, but sound great.
As for OP, I'd recommend the Blues Junior, Bass breaker or as someone else said, a Deluxe Reverb. The secret to SRV's tone is really just volume and attack, he never used much overdrive, so a loud clean amp with some heavy handed playing gets you very close.
I have a Super Sonic 22, and I have to disagree with Roc. The cleans on the Super Sonic are very lush, you don't get a mid control, but the bass and treble controls handle things just fine. I actually use the clean channel with an OD or just good olé higher volume and a hard attack and it breaks up beautifully when pushed. The clean channel is based of a '65 Deluxe Reverb after all. It also has a second channel for the clean called "Fat mode" which does what you think it would. Definitely no lack of mids or oomph in that channel. It does only have the one control reverb, and it's not as spacey as the '65 or '68, but it does sound great. Then there's the burn channel, with stacked gain controls and a volume that allows the distortion to be as silky even at lower volumes. You can get anything from a slightly overdriven blues tone to straight up metal on the burn channel. But for my use of pedals, the clean channel is a perfect platform, with all the ability to build with the fat mode and burn channel. The '65 Deluxe is the gold standard in cleans though, so if you intend to play just play clean or use pedals for any od/distortion instead of tube distortion, that's your best bet. The '68 is alright, but I wasn't the biggest fan of the custom channel. It does handle overdrive pedals well though
I never understood how the wah always gets misused, it's a very expressive effect. Apply it like you would bends and vibrato, accentuate the notes. Voila, you don't sound like a wanker, and added dynamics to your playing.

Everything is run through the front. The Uni-Vibe and especially the reverb are pretty much constantly on. And despite the rest of the effects, I usually play clean or just the Muff or the amps on board distortion.
When I bought my LP Classic, the store had 5 in. They were all correctly intonated, and at the very least in tune with themselves, but 2 of them felt like shit, 2 more were pretty good, but really not £1500 worth of guitar, and the last one just had me hooked within 10 seconds.
Still spent a good couple of hours farting about with them, but mostly I didn't even bother plugging them in. They all sounded good, but only one of them felt right.
Proves my point, had you ordered online, 80% chance you wouldn't of gotten the one that was right for you.

Yeah, and there's an even better chance that the guitar in the store has ancient strings and is poorly set-up.
About an hour or two for two days every pay period. Either to try new gear, talk mods or generally shoot the shit with the workers. Helps to have a good rapport with them, as it gets me deals. And lets me leave the store with a $1200 guitar when I've only put down $300 that day.
I also never understood how people can buy something like a guitar online. Pedals sure, but not something as adept to feel as a guitar. A lot of complaints about quality control could be avoided if the guitars were played first. But to each their own.
Been using Ernie Ball Titanium Coated strings (10-46) recently and it's the first time I felt I've found my brand. They feel a bit smoother than regular slinkies and have a clarity to the tone that trumps cobalts. The cobalts, I felt, were coarse as hell and because I have acid hands, they'd last maybe a week, if not less. The Titanium's will last me a month comfortably until I think I need a change. And it's lovely to bend 3 steps and not break a string.
When I heard the intro to Layla by Derek and the Dominos for the first time of a Clapton greatest hits CD my dad had. Was playing Ace Combat (one of the PS2 iterations.) That was the spark that made me want to play. It became a flame when I forgot my CD's for a long road trip and only had a Sabbath greatest hits, once again lifted from dad. Was grabbed enough that I wanted to make music as epic as I had heard
I recently bought a EHX Pitch Fork, and was just wondering if it was possible to do damage to my amp or cab when playing an octave or two lower (effectively playing a bass) for a long period of time. Is this an issue that people have come across with any other pitch shifters? Running a Fender Super Sonic 22 through a Super Sonic 412 cabinet.
As some have said, to each their own. Personally, I used to be all for relic guitars, but now I doubt I'd buy one unless it felt great to play, which is what really matters anyway. My Strat has some aging going on (had it for 3 years) where there's some serious belt buckle rash, dings and scratches, even the finish has faded a bit and the bridge has rusted lightly where I lay my hand. Took it in for some servicing and the dude working on it said "This guitar is loved, isn't it?" Feels good to have a guitar that shows hours of your playing on it.
Only a clutch of Ethiopian taxi drivers that take up the entire block with taxis every other day. The actual owner of the house is a good enough dude I have no issue with. Just wish the other taxi drivers could actually drive. Haven't seen people struggle so badly to parallel park with a 50 ft gap as these dudes. You all have insane neighbours
^ I'm not so much trying to keep it strictly Gibson, but keep it looking classic. I've found some Schallers and Gotohs that have the keystone peg, but the ratio is only 16:1. Can get either in a locking tuner, would anyone recommend either of these?
